Okay. Today I am weeding at the garden, to make room for
the rest of the stupid baby plants that are still sitting in the
porch room at home.
Here is the Before photo...
This is the row cover over the secondary Lemon Cucumber
patch, which I planted on jun23. And near the center, is
a mostly dead Squash plant.
And the After photo...
That was a lot of work... There were so many grass roots
in that little area.
Aw, look at the cute little potato plants coming up.
And, hey... The Wax Beans might grow faster than they can
Yesterday I didn't have my words... I was too mad to
Let's have another go at the Establishment Clause!
The Establishment Clause is part of the First Amendment
of the Constitution.
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment
of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof...
The courts have taken the
no law respecting bit
to mean (in part) that a
government official cannot endorse a religion. And, specific
to what I'm talking about today, a teacher in a public
school... who is paid by the state and therefore a
government employee... cannot
conduct religious exercises publicly, in their capacity
as a teacher.
So. This high school coach,
who is praying in the middle of the field...
And not necessarily forcing students to participate,
but there is def an implied message to
the football players...
Pray or don't play.
And the Supreme Court, again going against however many
years of precedent, ruled FOR this jerk of a football coach.
Yeah. And let's just follow the logic here. Promoting Christian
prayer in public, good good good! But... What if I'm a
Satanist, and I want to pray in the middle of the damn
field! (ha! Damning the field in the meantime!!! ;)
uh huh. That is NOT gonna fly.
How about a Muslim? A Jewish person?
Nope. None of this!
There's only one type who's going to be allowed to
publicly pray in a school setting, or on the high school
Just one religion.
Separation of Church and State? Dead and Dying.
America the theocracy? Just made a giant leap forward.
